Re: How to install ATI Radeon 4330 Driver

Yes, I understand that, but its not what I wanted. I just ended up reinstalling the LM15, everything worked right out of the box after the install and initial update. The video is working ok with whatever the default driver is and I don't do much with this unit that requires intensive graphics. Exce...

Re: How to install ATI Radeon 4330 Driver

@AlbertP Yeah, I know. I find though that with LM 13, I have issues with network printing that I seem to spend time straightening out. I reinstalled LM13 this morning, had an issue with the AMD 13-1 driver already, ie it wouldn't do a clean install and I ended up reverting to an older driver. Probab...

Re: How to install ATI Radeon 4330 Driver

I'm just reposting my earlier comments here as this is a more recent query on the ati topic. Nothing has changed from this afternoon til tonight lol. The xserver version has been an issue for quite a while now and I'm sure if anything was to be done, it would already have happened. I'm just shopping...

Re: AMD Catalyst won't install and freezing mouse

Hi, I just did the dance today with the instructions here. https://launchpad.net/~makson96/+archive/fglrx I actually tried it a few times and it broke my system each time. (just my laptop with a ATI 4650 card, or was it a 4560, no data lost). The remove and restore instructions did not work either e...

Re: X-Plane 10 installaton on Mint Cin 14

Hello, still on my quest here. Does anyone know if the launch.hta file is the actual program launcher for xplane. When I try to launch it, it tells me in a text file that my system is not recognizing the hta file. How would I check to see if that is true, and how would I be able to correct that? Tha...

X-Plane 10 installaton on Mint Cin 14

Hi all, has anyone tried to install xplane 10 on mint 14? I had it on mint 13 and it worked fine. I haven't come across any threads on this topic both here and at the xplane site. I have tried the suggestions for older systems but they have had no positive effect. The installer (downloaded from xpla...

Re: re theme files ...Solved

A system reinstall was in order for this one...lol. But now with a clean install, updated, and drivers installed, everything works as it should. At this point I have made my backups and have promised myself to be more regular making backups, unlike old chris was :)

Re: hp driver... solved now

I had some other issues so I did a new install. Right after the install and updates I did a check to see that everything worked, and then I made a backup :). Hopefully I don't have to go through that again.

Re: [Solved} Panel has gone missing

I found that one of the themes I had been using did not play well with cinnamon on my wifes laptop. It was a theme called cloud and it may be the ati vid card that doesn't like it as I am using it on my desktop too which has a nvidia card. I'm not sure of the details on this because I don't know how...

Re: Mate not ready for prime time

I agree Joe, its too bad its not working for you. I have 1 puter out of 5 that is giving me grief right now, up until recently I had no worries. That shows me though that there is something happening that I don't know about. My fix was to install mate on it to get it going (its my wifes). It works f...

I understand how you feel Joe, I go through it once in a while too and it gets frustrating for me because I don't know enough about repairing the system myself. I'm having an issue with cinnamon on my wifes laptop right now, and have been scouring the forums off and on all day. Its a simple issue pr...

Re: Panel has gone missing

I have done a reinstall now on that system. It worked fine after the reinstall, but after I did the update dance, the same thing happened again, the panel disappeared. If I login under gnome classic, the top and bottom panels show up, but there are lots of things missing and there is no way to edit ...
